TSO Parallel Rail Guides - Calibration Rods Storage
« on: April 11, 2021, 01:52 AM »
So, I just picked up a set of the TSO Parallel Rail Guides, and just know that I am going to lose the calibration rods, so I needed to come up with a solution.... I modeled up a 3D-Printed storage solution that keeps them where they're needed, with just enough friction-fit to not slide all over the place :)

Going to try to make a wall-mounting solution as well... Been doing a lot caliper work! Will keep y'all posted.

Does anyone else have any lead on anything ready-made for storing these on a wall? I have a prototype printing, but would love something off-the-shelf as well.

Great solution! Any chance you would be willing to make a pair of those for me? Happy to pay. Or at the least share the file with me so I can have them printed at Thing Universe?

Great idea, seriously!

Nice idea, but, you need to slide them out every time you use the track right?

Since I didn't find any wall mounts, I created one, which I now have up for sale on Etsy. Here's the listing in the F.O.G. classifieds...
